For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

Acting United States Attorney Steven A. Russell announced that Stetson Reinick, 35, was sentenced July 26, 2022, in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for possession with intent to distribute 5 grams or more of actual methamphetamine.  Chief United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter Jr. sentenced Reinick to 110 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, he will begin a five-year term of supervised release.

On September 21, 2020, law enforcement performed a trash pull at the residence of Reinick and co-defendant, Stephanie Mitchell. Law enforcement seized foil with burned residue that tested positive for heroin.  As a result, they were able to obtain  a search warrant for the residence. They located a backpack in a back bedroom that contained 21 grams of actual methamphetamine, scales, and drug paraphernalia.  In Reinick’s bedroom, a handgun was found between the mattress and headboard on Reinick’s side of the bed. 

Mitchell’s trial is scheduled for August 22, 2022.     

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne County, Nebraska, Sheriff’s Office.
